Maybe a dumb question, but I'm trying to come up with possiblilities for my Tele hotrod project. Is it possible (practical?) to mod a Telecaster with a stoptail Strat trem bridge if I have a router?

You wanner replace your tele bridge with a strat tremolo?

Its possible

are you refinishing the entire body? because you will have to for it to look half decent after the routings done.

Hm, well, I initially finished it in butterscotch blonde for a '51 look, and there are a couple dings here and there adding to the vintage-ness of it. Do you think I could get away with not refinishing it?

Well you would have to be very good with a router, get a good template new blade and take it slow.

but the finish may be brittle and still just chip easily so its hit or miss.

I see. I'll talk to the guy at my local guitar shop to see if he can do it. Thanks for the help!
